Mix Business with Pleasure with These Hot Netflix Picks

Building your empire can be exhausting. Come the weekend, there’s nothing like a little rest and relaxation to help you recharge and reboot. And we’re not just talking any kind of relaxation.

We’re talkin’ Netflix.

But just because you’re couch surfing all weekend doesn’t mean it has to be mindless. Plenty of today’s hottest shows portray life lessons that can help you elevate your life in different ways. From your business, to your work ethic, and your overall attitude toward life, here are a few binge-worthy shows and flicks to watch and learn from this weekend.

Narcos

The lesson: “Never surrender.”

You gotta give it to Pablo Escobar – he’s a man who let little stand in his way. This famed tale of the Columbian druglord has captivated a wide range of audiences. Watch as a local Robin Hood of sorts takes the global cocaine scene by storm. Whether it’s action, romance, or a tale of perseverance you crave, the life of Pablo Escobar has it all, and will leave you wanting more.

Breaking Bad

The lesson: “You gotta do what you gotta do.”

Breaking Bad follows Walter White on his quest toward both freedom and domination after being diagnosed with cancer, and a world of other problems. It’s the story of how one man crafts his own destiny, shunning conventionalism and throwing caution to the wayside in the process. And while we don’t quite condone establishing your own crystal meth ring, we’ll be damned if this isn’t an inspirational tale for the ages.

Chef’s Table

The lesson: “It’s all in the details.”

Ever wonder why fancy restaurants charge hundreds of dollars for a ten-course meal? You’ll find out why, plus more when you dig into Chef’s Table. A captivating combination of sight, sound and color, this docu-series is a foodie’s dream, and one that will make you salivate as you watch. It follows a handful of international chefs on their quest to Michelin-star status. Becoming an expert at just about anything requires a meticulous attention to details. These world-class chefs have turned chopping, flambéing and sautéing into an art. It’s a fascinating world to explore, whether you’re hungry or not.

The Pursuit of Happiness

“It’s all about perspective.”

Even the most successful entrepreneurs were likely chowing down on Ramen noodles at some point, and not the hip and trendy kind. The road to the top is long and winding, and just because you’re down and out one day doesn’t mean there aren’t brighter times ahead. Never lose hope in a better tomorrow. This applies to business, relationships, and pretty much life in general.
